Biography plus

I became a doctor to affect the lives of others in a meaningful and positive way. I strive to provide quality care in a friendly, professional manner with patient concerns always in mind.

In addition to many years of experience as a family practice physician, I have served as a Navy flight surgeon, part-time emergency physician and ear, nose and throat specialist. I am fully dedicated to keeping my patients as healthy as possible and to providing care in a cost-effective manner. My philosophy is: "Let's stay healthy together."

Outside of work I enjoy mountain hiking, gardening, traveling, snow sports, backpacking, photography and spending time with my family and dog.
